Love Comes Home by Ann Gabhart (Review)

  • Paperback: 384 pages
  • Publisher: Revell (July 1, 2014)
  • ISBN-13: 978-0800721855

When the flush of victory fades, there remains a winding road to an uncertain future.

World War II is finally over and the people of Rosey Corner are joyfully welcoming the boys home. The Merritt sisters in particular are looking toward the future. Kate is eager to start a family and live out her dream of happily ever after with Jay. Evangeline craves a beautiful house and encourages Mike to pastor a big-town church. Victoria wants what can never be. And Lorena is growing up and wondering more and more about her birth family.

Each sister must learn to hold her plans with a loose hand, trusting that God will guide and strengthen them as they share the joys and sorrows of life in their little corner of the world.

Award-winning and bestselling author Ann Gabhart invites you back to Rosey Corner for a heartfelt story that closes the distance between the things that were and things that can yet be.

My Review:

This was a great conclusion to the Rosey Corner series. In this book WWII is over and the guys come home. Jay and Kate got married right before he went off to war so they did not get to live together for long. Evie and Mike had been married for a little bit. Neither couple was ready for the PTSD following the war. The wives knew the men would not be the same. Mike no longer wants to preach and that is his calling in life. Jay has trouble sleeping at night and is scared of having children and being like his crappy father. The book and series really centers around the four Merritt sisters. The other two are Victoria and Lorena. In this book Tori has a young daughter that she is raising on her own because her husband died in the war. Lorena is a teenager and was found by the family in the first book in the series abandoned by her parents. In this book she wants to find them. Love in different forms is the main theme. The characters and plot are well developed and interesting. I really enjoyed reading this Christian WWII book. Recommended. 

Ann H. Gabhart is the bestselling author of Angel Sister, Small Town Girl, and Words Spoken True, as well as several Shaker novels--The Outsider, The Believer, The Seeker, The Blessed, and The Gifted--and The Heart of Hollyhill series. She lives with her husband a mile from where she was born in rural Kentucky. Learn more at
